Maternity Leave

Well my last week of maternity leave is here. It has gone by way to fast and in a short week, I will experience what my husband so many weeks ago did. I won't get to see my girls ALL DAY EVERYDAY.

We made the choice to send our girls to daycare. I would love if a grandparent could watch them for us, but none of our parents are retired...YET. I tried to get my mom to retire, but sadly she still has about 7 years left.

But we did our research, had advice from friends and decided to send our girls to the daycare across the street from our work. Super convenient yes, but we just like the place in general. There are only four children (infants) to one teacher and two of those babies are ours. It is a Christian based program, it is reasonably priced and comes highly rated.

Now I just have to make it through my first day of work while they are there. But in the meantime, I am going to soak up every ounce of these babies and enjoy my week off with them.

But going back to work also means I can blog more. I won't have my little ones to attend to and keep me from finishing my post (I have a few drafts in my folder). I also will get back the adult interaction everyday and get myself out of the house everyday. So I have to look at the good with the bad and transition into my new life.

But look at these can one leave them?

  1. I went back to work when my daughter was 3 months old, so I know how you're feeling! The first day dropping her off was definitely the hardest, and part of me didn't think I could do it. But we also found an amazing daycare and I know she gets loved on so much there (and they have a camera, so I can peak in on her all day). She's 6 months old now and I am so happy with our choice. I'm a teacher and I love my job, and of course, LOVE being a mama and I'm so glad I get to do both now.
